Iowa State Cyclones at No. 3 TCU Horned Frogs (-33.5)

The TCU Horned Frogs are a perfect 6-0 SU and ATS over their last six games at home. With one more chance to impress the College Football Playoff selection committee, TCU hosts Iowa State on Saturday (noon, ABC).

TCU moved up to No. 3 in the most recent playoff rankings, but while the other teams in the mix are playing in conference championship games the Horned Frogs are simply wrapping up their regular season against a 2-9 SU and 4-7 ATS Iowa State team. The OVER is 6-3 in Iowa State's last nine Big 12 road games and 5-1 in TCU's last six Big 12 home games. This one could be high scoring because TCU has no reason to hold back on offense as it seeks every last style point.

The Horned Frogs are a 33.5-point favorite at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.

No. 5 Ohio State Buckeyes vs. No. 13 Wisconsin Badgers (-4)

Ohio State takes on Wisconsin Saturday (8:17 p.m., FOX) and hopes to play its way into a playoff spot with an upset win. Despite being the better-ranked team, the Buckeyes are four-point underdogs due to last week's injury to quarterback J.T. Barrett. Ohio State is 6-1 SU and ATS in its last seven games against Wisconsin, according to the OddsShark College Football Database. Down to their third-string quarterback, the Buckeyes will have their hands full against a Wisconsin team that is 7-0 SU and 4-3 ATS over its last seven conference games.

No. 4 Florida State Seminoles vs. No. 11 Georgia Tech (+4)

After falling to No. 4 in the playoff rankings coming off a sloppy win over Florida, the Florida State Seminoles cannot afford a loss Saturday against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in the ACC championship game (8 p.m., ABC). Florida State is 28-0 SU over its last 28 games but just 3-10 ATS over its last 13 contests. The Seminoles face a Georgia Tech team that is 5-0 SU and ATS over its last five games and 5-0 ATS in its last five games against Florida State. Georgia Tech is a four-point underdog on the college football betting lines.
